The Angus Foundation will be hosting a fundraising auction at the 2017 #GrowAngus National Conference Gala Dinner in Ballarat on May 18th.
The Angus Foundation provides a mechanism for members and other beef industry stakeholders to support youth development, education and research programs conducted by Angus Australia.
These programs are designed to encourage and assist the involvement of young people in the Australian beef industry, to provide professional development opportunities for young beef breeders, and to assist in the conduct of research, development and education programs for the benefit of Angus breeders and the wider Australian beef industry.
The Angus Foundation was launched at the Angus National Conference in 2013. The Foundation is governed by a Committee of the Angus Australia Board, with advice from Angus Australia members and other industry participants with an interest in assisting with the Foundation’s activities.
To date, the Angus Foundation has provided funds to support Angus Australia’s Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries program. In the future, where funds permit, it is proposed that the Foundation will expand its activities to support education and research projects.
Angus Australia would like to extend a sincere thank you to the generous supporters of the Angus Australia Foundation and in particular to those who have donated to the 2017 #GrowAngus Auction.
